If I'm understanding you correctly, you want to create a group on your email server that includes external email addresses.  If this is the case, you would create contacts on your server for those external email addresses.  Then create the group and add the contacts to the group.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, can the contacts be added via exchange and then assigned to a distribution group that is visible in outlook on the clients PC's?

Yes. All clients are visible via outlook unless they are tagged to be hidden in Exchange.  Tis also applies to external contacts and groups.

Thanks, I have just configured as described however the group is not showing in the GAL, does it take a while for exchange to update the address list?

If you update your recipient policy, the group should show up.

Thanks again
